See Counting Spaces.

You can't count spaces through blocking terrain, walls or doors. (Nor any diagonal intersection of any of their combination.)

Counting spaces is a very often used concept in the game, so getting it fully clear in your mind will help you in the future.

sorry but I still do not understand the meaning of Alter Mind Ability, someone can explain how it works?

Let's say Obi and a trooper are close to an objective that gives points if someone controls it. The alter mind ability both prevent the imperial from scoring and allows the rebel player to score?
that trooper cannot interact with anything (door, take item, terminal...) until Obi is within 3 spaces? Can such trooper attack a door?

thanks!

All hostile figures of figure cost 6 or lower within 3 spaces of Obi-Wan are ignored when determining control of an object. Obi-Wan or another of your figures still need to be on or adjacent to gain control. It depends on the mission rules what that means, but at least controlling terminals allows to draw additional command cards.

The hostile figures of figure cost 6 or lower also cannot perform interacts (interacting with a door to open it, or other Interacts specified by the mission rules) while within 3 space of Obi-Wan, but attack is not an interact, so that is fine.

thanks a1bert, sounds like a powerful ability to me:
for only 7 points you have 12 health, 3 attack dice, surge+2 dmg/piece 3...

isn't Obi-wan overpowered when compared with other rebel heroes with a similiar price (diala, garkhan)? or even higher (han solo is 12 and so close to kenobi in stats!!!)

Han Solo and most of the unique core box deployment cards are overcosted.

FFG is using elite Stormtroopers and elite Probe Droids as benchmarks that each new figure should approach but not quite exceed, so that new figures become viable, but not cause power creep.
